Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Here Comes SUNSHINE....collecting the GOLD......Re: (Winterland) 73

who knows what happened with this song. it is a cloudy piece of work, for all it goes on about promised sunshine, it is a peon to gold.... the problem with this song seemed to be it was PLAGUED BY PLODDING rhythm..... only on a few instances was the uplifting bent of the song maintained for the full ten minutes or so it took to expedite the scant verses..... on this version from April 2, 1973.... the jam between the second and third verse carries very fluidly, and just don't have to go no more -- the band takes off on an exquisite meltdown.....


TRULY! this is not just a "space-out" -- the music has lead the way.... our beloved 49ers find themselves digging for gold again.... they come up aces with Bobby Mcgee>Weather Report prelude>Eyes of the World.

The song itself is a bit of a dirge, but is one of my favorites for the solos....the 12-6-73 version is perhaps the one I put on the of the longest, and still ends too soon!
